    Jotaro Kujo
    Voiced by: Matthew Mercer
    Stand: Star Platinum
    Ability: Strength and Precision
    Stats: Destructive Power - A / Speed - A / Range - C / Durability - A / Precision - A / Developmental Potential - A
    Namesake: The Star (tarot card)
    Joseph’s grandson, Jotaro isn’t one for displaying his emotions and is a man of few words, but deep down has a gentle heart and will protect anybody close to him, especially if he has to beat the crap out of someone. Recently, he gained a mysterious power known as a Stand, his being a powerful one with incredible precision and strength. With his Stand, Star Platinum, he’s now on a journey to Egypt to take down DIO and save his mother.

    Joseph Joestar
    Voiced by: Richard Epcar
    Stand: Hermit Purple
    Ability: Divination and Hamon
    Stats: Destructive Power - D / Speed - C / Range - D / Durability - A / Precision - D / Developmental Potential - E
    Namesake: The Hermit (tarot card)
    Joseph Joestar once saved the world nearly 50 years ago, but since then retired from his Hamon training and became a real estate tycoon in America. However, after gaining his Stand, he sprung back into action once discovering that the evil DIO, who had taken his grandfather’s life, had reemerged from his hundred-year slumber. Alongside his grandson Jotaro, his friend Avdol, and high schooler Kakyoin, Joseph is now in a race against time to defeat DIO and remove the curse afflicting his daughter Holly.

    Muhammad Avdol

    Stand: Magician’s Red
    Ability: Fire Manipulation
    Stats: Destructive Power - B / Speed - B / Range - C / Durability - B / Precision - C / Developmental Potential - D
    Namesakes: Paula Abdul (Singer) / The Magician (Tarot card)
    Joseph’s Egyptian friend, Avdol is the voice of reason and a rather serious individual. He possesses a strong sense of loyalty and duty, determined to eliminate DIO and his minions, while helping the Joestars any way possible using his worldly knowledge. Unlike Joseph and Jotaro, Avdol was born with his Stand, and thus has essentially mastered his own abilities.

    Noriaki Kakyoin
    Voiced by: Kyle Hebert
    Stand: Hierophant Green
    Abilities: Coiled body, marionette control, and Emerald Splash
    Stats: Destructive Power - C / Speed - B / Range - A / Durability - B / Precision - C / Developmental Potential - D
    Namesakes: Kakyoin (neighborhood in Sendai, Japan) / The Hierophant (tarot card)
    Kakyoin originally worked for DIO, having been brainwashed by the vampire while on a family trip to Egypt, but was saved by Jotaro. Being a righteous individual determined to rid the world of evil and to repay his debt to Jotaro, Kakyoin has joined the quest to defeat DIO.

    Jean Pierre Polnareff
    Voiced by: Doug Erholtz
    Stand: Silver Chariot
    Abilities: Speed and sword combat
    Stats: Destructive Power - C / Speed - A / Range - C / Durability - B / Precision - B / Developmental Potential - C
    Namesakes: Jean-Paul Belmondo (actor) / Michel Polnareff (musician) / The Chariot (tarot card)
    Polnareff is a chivalrous Frenchman who met the Crusaders in Hong Kong. He was initially a minion of DIO but, like Kakyoin, was rescued from the brainwashing that had been placed on him. Now, with his rapier-wielding Stand, he has joined the group to avenge his sister who was killed by a Stand user with two right hands.

    DIO
    Voiced by: Patrick Seitz
    Namesake: DIO (Band)
    Stand: ???
    In the early 1880’s, a lower-class orphan by the name of Dio Brando was taken in by the upper-class Joestar family. With resentment for those of higher social status than him, Dio spent the next 7 years planning to take out the heir to the Joestar family, Jonathan Joestar, and claim its fortune. However, caught at a critical time in his plan, Dio used an ancient artifact the Joestars owned to become a vampire and began a new plot for world domination. Jonathan, along his friends, fought back against Dio, ending in a confrontation on a ship in the middle of the Atlantic which cost Jonathan’s life and sent Dio to a supposed watery grave. However, nearly a hundred years later, he was recovered by an unsuspecting group of treasure hunters, and given life anew in the modern age! Having gained possession of a mysterious Stand ability, the being now known simply as “DIO” wraps his insidious grasp around the world through agents also possessing Stands, in the resurrection of his plot to end the Joestar bloodline and dominate humanity! Jonathan’s body has manifested a Stand similar to Joseph’s Hermit Purple which allows DIO to monitor the Stardust Crusaders, but DIO’s own Stand is something more mysterious and far more terrifying.

    Episode 6 (32)
    “Dark Blue Moon"
    Chapters adapted: 127-130​

    Previously on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure:
    After a demonstration of his powers in the restaurant, the Frenchman introduced himself as Jean Pierre Polnareff, and the fight with Avdol was taken outside to the nearby Tiger Balm Garden. The two did battle, but Avdol outsmarted Polnareff, causing the Frenchman to be engulfed in flames. Defeated, Polnareff chivalrously accepts his fate, at which point Avdol extinguished the fire. It was revealed at this point that he was being controlled by a fleshbud like Kakyoin had, which Star Platinum promptly removed.

    At the docks, Polnareff reintroduced himself and told a story about his sister, who had been raped and murdered years earlier by a Stand user with two right hands. Believing that the Stand user he’s been looking for has become a servant of DIO, Polnareff joined the Stardust Crusaders to find the man with two right hands and put an end to DIO.

    Now:
    The Crusaders board a ship headed for Singapore when a stowaway is discovered, along with a crew member who isn’t who they claim to be.

    Previously on Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, the sexism got so bad it had @Light Lucario swear off the series.

    Previously on JJBA: Polnareff fell into a burnin' ring of fire. And then he joined Jojo's team.

    So the recap is a highlight reel of the last several episodes.

    Just like how Yusuke and Kuwabara always wore their uniforms. I guess those uniforms are quite snazzy.

    They probably can't relax. Someone attacks them on the ship.

    Oh dear. Flim Flam stowed away.

    The fact that the s-word is kept in means good hopes for later episodes (in terms of Joseph).

    I don't think whether or not he can swim is the issue.

    Would this be JoJaws?

    Sexism and animal abuse.

    And child molesting.

    Well, the shark is officially no longer the alpha predator.

    And that's what a shark stand beatdown looks to a non-stand user.

    Oh yeah. Forgot about sharks when making my point about Matthew Pyke's murderer needing to spend money on a plane ride to pull his BS.

    And wow, Samus Is A Girl. At least this girl has some self-respect. FINALLY.

    More hope for the Toonami airing: they don't darken Jotarou's face when he smokes.

    At least they have an anti-smoking policy.
